Abstract:

Set in Polanco, a Jewish quarter of Mexico City, Springall's seriocomic drama depicts the religious rituals and dysfunctional dynamics of a Mexican Jewish family coping with the untimely death of their beloved pater familias Moishe. Cultures collide as Moishe's large family and assorted eccentric friends gather to pay their respects to the dead, sitting shivah for a week, as is the Jewish tradition. Watching the loca familia in mourning is a pair of irascible (and invisible) Yiddish-speaking Angels, who take stock of the deceased's decidedly unorthodox life. Leading the family in demonstrating their grief is Moishe's neurotic middle-aged daughter Esther, who threatens to kill her father's long-time mistress, Julia Palafox, if she dares to show her face.
